What I did is scanning using a channels.conf file. Mythtvsetup find all 
channels but when trying to watch live TV there's low signals and no lock.

I checked the database, but so far can't find anything. I also wonder if 
there's some useful output form mythbackend to debug the whole thing as by 
looking through the database I get nowhere as I don't know what to look for.
